from have a great night. lou: good evening, everybody. i am lou dobbs and this is the obama campaign's newest political ad. pushing messages that seem to contradict the obama philosophy and agenda. >> i am not looking for a handout. i don't think anybody is ever looking for a handout. i think that we all want chances and opportunities. >> if you try to separate by demographics and classes, you're not really president you want here is the president in his own words on the politics of wealth redistribution and class warfare. >> and the trick is figuring out how to restructure government systems that pool resources and facilitate some redistribution. i actually believe in redistribution. i just want to make sure that everybody who is behind this that they have a chance at success too. when you spread the word around, it's good for everybody. i was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth. my wife michelle is was not. but somebody give us a chance. >> if you have a business -- you did not know that. somebody else made that happen. lou: the romney campaign message is direct. president oba

for obama four years ago is he promised to bring us more honest government. i've been around politics. [inaudible] the government in washington right now is permeated by cronyism, outright corruption and regulatory agencies, protecting the people they are supposed to be regulating. doesn't matter if you're in the tea party or occupy wall street, people see the government is working for the powerful interests and people who are well connected politically and not connected to the regular person. we have this great opportunity.
